First lady Michelle Obama has been one of the most ardent supporters of military families over the last several years, and she recently furthered her commitment when she made a visit to both the Fisher House and Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. She stopped in not only to talk to the loved ones of wounded servicemembers‚Äč, but also to offer tickets to the upcoming Easter Egg Roll at the White House, USA Today reports.

The visit gave Obama the opportunity to discuss the challenges faced by military families, which are often especially prevalent among those who have a family member currently in the hospital. However, she discussed more than just the obstacles they have to overcome. She also praised the Fisher House, which offers families the chance to stay close to their loved ones while they are recovering.

"I mean, the Fisher Houses, as you all know, are just so important to families who are recuperating," she told those in attendance. "They're doing some great stuff.  As you can see, the houses are beautiful. And all around the country, they are as beautiful and as welcoming and as comforting as you guys are experiencing here."

Obama's visit is evidence of her commitment to the Joining Forces initiative, which she launched with Dr. Jill Biden to support military families across the country.
